Shakespeare's heart-breaking tale, Nureyev's blazing ballet

We bring the world's greatest love story to the Royal Festival Hall, with Rudolf Nureyev's inventive and passionate choreography and Prokofiev's exhilarating score performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

Sumptuous costumes and sets transport you to Renaissance Verona, its piazza bustling with market traders, street entertainers and the restless factions of the Capulet and Montague families.

Amidst the grandeur of the Capulet's ball, our star-crossed lovers meet, unleashing a fateful sequence of events, from the romantic bedroom scene to their tragic final embrace.

Full of action, humour and drama, Rudolf Nureyev's award-winning production of Romeo & Juliet was especially created for us in 1977 to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee. The Company has since performed it worldwide to critical acclaim.

"This is the most deeply romantic of all versions and the most tragic."
The Daily Express

"Powerfully atmospheric" 
The Observer
